Paul D. Camp Community College, through the generous support of the Obici Healthcare Foundation, will present a free workshop for healthcare professionals on Monday, April 20, 2015 at Southampton Memorial Hospital’s East Pavilion Auditorium.
“This event is focused on identifying barriers of diabetes management in our region and identifying ways to help people overcome the barriers,” said Carol Wright, Associate Professor and Nurse Planner for Continuing Education Events at PDCCC.
“Improving the Outcomes for Clients with Diabetes Mellitus” will be led by Dana Stallings, RN, BSN, of the Virginia Department of Health. The free educational event will include a healthy lunch and is geared to registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and advanced practice nurses who care for clients with diabetes mellitus. Participants will earn one Continuing Education credit hour, but must attend the full hour of the program in order to qualify.
The schedule is as follows:

“I am encouraging people to register early,” said Wright. “There are only 30 spaces available for the workshop.”
This workshop is part of a series of events funded by the Obici Healthcare Foundation that will provide evidence-based, up-to-date information on diabetes for local area nurses.
“PDCCC is committed to not only the education of undergraduate nurses, but providing lifelong learning opportunities and continuing education opportunities to nurses working in our communities as well,” said Wright. “We are expanding our services to provide learning opportunities for nurses to attain the continuing education hours that are now mandatory in the Commonwealth of Virginia in order to renew their licensure.”
